These were started last year and I finally finished them this year. Both are seamless, top-down sweaters. First up is Mondo Cable Cardi in Cotton-Ease. Collar was a little tricky. The designer posted extra instructions in Ravelry and it helped.

Next up is Buttercup in Hempathy. Simple, well-written pattern with just a bit of lace to keep it interesting.

These scarves were finished last year. One of them was a gift for a friend and the others went to charity. They made great mindless commute knitting.

One Row Handspun Scarf in Malabrigo Merino Worsted. I cast on only 22 stitches for a narrower scarf.

Scrappy Lengthwise Scarf in Spotlight Basics 8 Ply Acrylic. I cast on 30 stitches and knitted this widthwise.

Another One Row Handspun Scarf in Spotlight Basics 8 Ply Acrylic. Cast on with 34 stitches and just knitted till yarn ran out.

That scrap scarf is inspiring!  I might try a width-wise version as well...I love the texture!!!

This isn't Kansas, and I'm not wearing red shoes.

Thank you!

I really like the scrappy scarf. Doing it widthwise also makes it easier to lug around for commute knitting. I think I'll try it lengthwise one of these days with all the scrap yarns I have lying around.  Smiley
